The CS-DC living roadmap of complex systems
Open questions, challenges and resources
The CS-DC Wikiversity portal is where the CS-DC living roadmap is developing under the peer-to-peer collaboration of all the concerned scientists in the world.
- As in Wikipedia, any scientist can modify the challenges and references at the different levels of the CS-DC organization, 'i.e.' e-departments, e-laboratories, project-teams and the constantly improving resources they produce.
- Contrary to Wikipedia, instead of being the encyclopedia of scientifically established knowledge, the CS-DC living roadmap is an encyclopedia of the open questions, challenges and conjectures posed by Complex Systems.
The main aim of the CS-DC is to share all necessary research and educational resources in order to deal with the challenges of Complex Systems. The first shared resource for dealing with this aim is the CS-DC living roadmap as an encyclopedia of open questions and open resources.
Of course, the construction of the CS-DC living roadmap is currently far for being complete. The way to complete it as well as its whole logic is detailed below. All the concerned scientists in the world are invited to visit or modify existing challenges and create new ones by proposing new CS-DC entities in relation with the existing ones. All CS-DC entities are providing sustainable resources to all its members and, beyond, to all concerned scientists.
Please read about the Objectives of the CS-DC Wikiversity portal.
Constructing the living roadmap of complex systems
There are “dual and equivalent” scientific strategies for developing the living roadmap of complex systems:
- starting with a great transversal question and looking to the responses through the main classes of multi-level complex systems. All together, their scientific challenges constitute the international living roadmap of the complex systems science, as a transdiscipline.
- starting with a main class of multi-level complex systems and looking to the responses to the great transversal questions. The result constitutes the living roadmap of an integrative and predictive science, as a transdiscipline.
These two dual scientific strategies are producing two equivalent roadmaps, because its horizontal chapters and is vertical chapter are covering exactly the same matrix of scientific challenges.
See also the Curriculum on Complex Systems Sciences project.
Producing/sharing the resources for overcoming the roadmap challenges
By construction, the CS-DC organisation has almost exactly the same structure as the living roadmap: the e-departments correspond to the chapters; the e-laboratories and project-teams are covering in a more and more precise and complete way the matrix. Their new results from research and education by research are shared as CS-DC resources for overcoming new challenges. The permanent transdiciplinary interactions in the matrix increase the natural convergence between the theoretical aspects of the living international roadmap of complex systems and the experimental aspects of the living international roadmaps of the new integrative science. This "natural convergence" is of the same kind as the reciprocal co-evolution of mathematics and physics in the last centuries.
